  6. The desktop.ini file may be missing, or its Read-only and/or Hidden attributes may have been lost. See:

    The solution, I believe to your problem is as follows:

    1) Open a command window and navigate to C:\Users\<YourName>
    2) Run "attrib +r Music" from the command line (without the quotes)

    if you like you can check your handiwork by doing an "attrib Music" (again,
    without the quotes) it should show up as follows:

    C:\Users\Rogue>attrib music
    R C:\Users\Rogue\Music

    if there are any other file attributes along with the 'R' then remove them
    with the "attrib -" (as opposed to "attrib +") and whatever letter shows up
    (a, h, s or whatever)
    Close Explorer, Reopen, and order should have been restored

    oh, never mind. i just found the solution for my videos. and i just realised
    that 'incomplete' folder is not windows default, so obviously it doesn't have
    a shell folder icon ;P. anyway, thanks for your help:)
